MI5 'bugged PMs'

Security service MI5 secretly bugged five prime ministers and their Cabinets for nearly 15 years, according to reports in the Mail on Sunday.

The disclosure follows several denials that this practice ever took place.

Investigative journalist Stephen Dorril, and Joe Haines, former press secretary to prime minister Harold Wilson, examine the implication of the secret recording of private government conversations.
